Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Musical Endorphin....

Headed out for my morning constitution,feeling every bit my half century + years....sluggish,hurting,and asking myself whay I continue to do this to myself every morning.After two very hard and painfull miles I hit the play button on my tune box...not remembering what was loaded on 2nd half of my 1gig player....Close To The Edge proceded to unfold..."Seasons will pass you by" Oh How that line hits me..into 91-04-28 Birdsong,with Carlos....OUCH!!Had to hit replay to make sure I heard what I thought I heard...into 79-02-03 Scarlet/Fire>Estimated>Eyes>Other One....It was a just what I needed to get my ass in gear..........After all these years and thousands of hours of music I am still amazed how I can be carried away mentally by certain tunes at totally unexpected moments.....
Keep the sound alive!!!!!!!!

Every morning....Nordic trac, rowing machine, weights , a whole lot of moaning and groaning. Also nearly sixty. I listen on a Sony Walkman that plays mp3's. Stock behind the head Sony earphones from Radio Shack and they stay put through sweat and toil. Also have a Creative Zen Nano (igb) with earbuds...seventy bucks from Amazon, no tax, free shipping!
Too flimsy for exercise, though many people like them.

uhhhh...jogging? a good half hour of streching AND a few puffs, helps my almost 60(!!) bones hit da road. Btw, what are the best headphones for jogging (considering sweat and all that)I still use the stone age tape-walkman. I DO need to get with ipod i guess.....

I use Sony buds..sound is not Bose like,but they do not get in the way,and have stood up to heavy rain and lots of sweat.I also wrap my player in plasic wrap,then put inside a plastic bag and poke a hole for my headphone plug. I use a Creative flash player,no skips...and Very inexpensive compared to the Ipod.(Yes,I am a cheap skate).I have used it every day for a year,2+ hours a day with no problems at all...so if it dies 2mro I am not out much...Then I can buy another,and still be WAY under the cost of Ipod..At home I run everything thru my computer >Old HK tube pre amp>eq>Bose 901's and klipsh (old Cornwalls)..and JBL sub woofer.Sound is sweet........

Does the Creative have gapless playback? The only reason I'd stick with I-Pod whenever my current one gives out (hopefully not for a long time)is the gapless playback option their new software has, allowing me to listen to shows without the annoying silent break between tracks. If a less expensive player is out there with the same feature, I would most certainly look into it for my next player. Thanks in advance for the info.

do you mean the Creative Zen V -or can you tell me the exact model that has the gapless option? Can it play the high quality 1441 kbs wave or are you talking MP3?

I have no idea which model, if any, has gapless playback. I'm just throwing the question out there to see which models from ANY manufacturer have this feature. Since I have only owned an Ipod, this is the only one I am familiar with.

My model only plays mp3 or wma,and has no gapless feature...but like I said I am a cheap ass and I wanted cheap to carry rain or shine,since I run regardless the weather.Creative does have models with wave play options...works good for my needs.If I wanted the best to carry I guess I would go with Ipod...or maybe IRiver players.

Maybe the folks here could pass the hat and get you one for X-Mas (or whichever non-denominational seasonal observance youmay subscribe to). I, too, am a "cheap ass" and held off for quite some time, but my wife surprised me with one for my last birthday. Thanks to the huge popularity of the thing, there are countless doo-dads to go with it, one that I have used and truly like, is a waterproof jacket that attaches to your arm (or waist if you prefer). Allows for easy portability while jogging, biking, hiking, whatever. Regardless of make, model, or manufacturer, these things are the best thing to happen to bootlegs since the invention of home recording.

when and if i time my runs, I've noticed I'm @ 5-10% slower during a wake 'n bake run...but I seem to be more in touch with my "bio-feedback" and more relaxed...i never over do it, or get injuries. Gotta tell you though, the first 1/2mi is a trip indeed, until i get into the "zone" and break on thru to the other side-lol

When I wake up in the morning my wife says I look like I'm slow dancin' in the Near Death Follies. After some Dead and some exercise, it's a whole different day. BTW, using the mp3 player during workout gives me a chance to review a lot of music, see what's great and plan on seeking better sources.
